European technology platform for the transport industry Cabonline has selected HERE Technologies as its mapping and location services provider to support the company’s future growth.
Cabonline has announced that it is now integrating the HERE Location Services suite into its platform.
The integration will give Cabonline access to accurate mapping, traffic information and routing algorithms.
Kristofer Signer chief technology officer at Cabonline said, ‘With HERE Technologies as our location partner, we aim to further optimise the movement of each of our 5,700 cars as well as enhance customer experience. This is an important part of our work to shape an efficient and scalable technology platform that can support our continued growth.’
Supported by HERE Location Services, Cabonline targets several benefits, including:
• More precise ETAs for customers and drivers, aided by HERE routing algorithms which draw on real-time, predictive and historical traffic data
• More precise ride cost estimations for customers
• Improved driver safety, aided by industry-leading map information that integrates data for taxi driving lanes, speed limits and electric vehicle charging points
• Improved post-trip analytics
HERE said that it is also well-placed to support Cabonline as it expands in on-demand transportation and logistics. This spring, Cabonline launched jip as a new brand in Trondheim, Norway, with a focus on attracting young professionals. The company also recently launched Reliver, a service for handling return goods that e-commerce customers order but do not want to keep, enabling transporters to move packages during times when cars are not highly utilised.
‘World-class transportation requires a world-class mapping platform,’ said Stefan Hansen, senior vice president and general manager EMEAR at HERE Technologies. ‘
Our visibility into live road conditions, advanced routing algorithms and other location tools enables us to support Cabonline in the effective planning and execution of its daily fleet operations. We look forward to collaborating with Cabonline through the next stage of its growth,’ added Hansen.
